Overview:

This enterprise class 802.11ax ruggedized indoor/outdoor AP provides three radios. As a top-of-the-line Wi-Fi 6 access point it provides OFDMA, a 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet port, plus an additional 1 Gbps Ethernet port with PoE out. The AP can be configured for dual 5 GHz band access while still providing coverage for devices on the 2.4 GHz band, or can be configured to offer dedicated scanning. The integrated BLE radio can be used for beacons and locationing applications.

  • 802.11ax | Tri-Radio 5 GHz + 5 GHz + 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz + 2.4 GHz + scanning | 10 Antennas
  • 4x4 MIMO | Up to 4,804 Mbps + 4,804 Mbps + 300 Mbps

Unified Management

Ability to intelligently support integrated security controllers (FortiGate), and cloud management options with FortiGuard services at the edge; and establish a new benchmark in flexibility, performance, and security.

Wi-Fi 6 technology with data rates of up to 4.8 Gbps and OFDMA improves client throughput and overall network efficiency.

Advanced Security Protection

Integrates with Fortinet’s Security Fabric, providing unparalleled cybersecurity protection at the network edge.


Deployments:

Fortinet UTP access points are designed to support a variety of deployments from branches, to medium to large offices, schools, universities, hospitals, hotels, and large retail stores. These access points can serve such a wide range of applications because they can be managed by any of Fortinet’s control and management. By supporting UTP services at the edge, deployments have the flexibility to enable security services wherever they need them in their network.

FortiGuard Services

Education

The Education sector is at rising risk from cyber attacks. This in conjunction with requirements to protect minors from inappropriate materials can make deploying wireless a challenge. Our integrated secure wireless controller (FortiGate) ensures secure student access to learning resources while FortiGuard services provides cybersecurity protection.

Healthcare

Patient safety is priority one. Fortinet UTP APs empower hospitals to improve patient safety by enabling life-critical applications such as telemetry requiring low bandwidth but exceptionally high reliability. Our dedicated wireless controllers (integrated WLAN controller of any FortiGate security appliance) connected to our access points ensures patient safety remains paramount, while providing improved performance for wireless enabled medical devices.
